Which is the biggest, Cheapest SELLOUT… the USA or the Louisiana Purchase?

When growing up, it was a historical fact that in 1803, the U. S. bought Louisiana from France for approximarely a $1.50. And being concise, It would be more correct to say, the purchase was no more than $5.00. Absurd? Not really.

In the beginning of commercial banking, and before their dawn, American families traditionally, saved up coins in a piggy bank.

(Stock) As we all know piggy banks have died.

The reality here is that money is a game changer.

(Stock) If you cannot by a single item with a coin, what is the purpose of a coin? More and more pennies and other coins are simply thrown away.

In our world today and the U.S.A. , inflation reigns out-of-control. The implimentation of the credit card only proved that money is marginal and with a backhand of leniency and greed, such usages only result in a deep and darker contagion of inflation.

Looking back at the game changing of money, we must observe the declining value of GOLD. And too, there is a continual decline in values on technology due to competitive advancements. Within the U.S.A.’s economic battles, gas and real estate are the most steadfast. Nonetheless, today’s moderate consumers have no vision and are not fighting against the perponderance of economic evils; complacency runs through their blood.

We’ve all heard the term you “rob Peter to pay Paul”. Basically the U.S. economy and the economies of the world are caught up in this same concept. EXAMPLES are: tax increases to compensate many living increases (food, conveniences and a variety of living expenses). Pay raises are given intermittently are a compromise for the escalation of costs. Sadly, there are no endings to tax increases, cost of living and pay raises. To add to the cost hikes, everybody wants to be a millionaire or billionaire.


Dear Bankers and Elitists,

Where do we go from here? Grab all the money up and there are money piles. If money is not in circulation, it has no value.

… Monetary values die hard!

A Patriotic Fourth: What Does That Mean Now?

Even a divided country can come together to celebrate its birthday. Can’t it?

This Fourth of July weekend, we wanted to see how patriotic Americans were feeling as they hit the road to beach parties, mountain cabins and backyard barbecues across this fractious, fractured country.

Are people still taking pride in a country rippling with waves of anger and resistance, riven by resentments and bitterly divided over issues like health care and immigration? Can patriotism encompass both supporting the president and marching against him? Standing during the national anthem and taking a knee in protest?

To find out, we headed to roadside restaurants, outlet stores and rest stops in Colorado, Georgia and New Hampshire and spoke with about three dozen people as they stopped for bathroom breaks and reheated hot dogs. Some interviews have been condensed.

‘We Can Be Kind, No Matter What’

Jensen Sutta, 39; his wife, Kiha, 36; and their two boys, Perry, 6, and Easton, 5, had been poking through traffic on the way from their home in the suburbs south of Denver to a weekend of camping and fishing in central Colorado’s mountains.

Patriotism to me means appreciating the military, means appreciating our freedom and appreciating the fact that anyone really is free to express what they want to express.

Being with our kids on this weekend, it does give the opportunity to remind them that they can’t control who’s elected or can’t control many things, but what they can control is that they’re kind and they’re thankful. We can be kind, no matter what. I never would have thought of that prior to this election cycle.

‘A Good Country, Regardless’

Sheldon Henderson, 60, and Robbie Robinson, 63, were planning a day of motorcycling around the ski town of Breckenridge, Colo. Sheldon served in the Navy and Robbie in the Air Force, which helps feed a friendly rivalry between the two.

Sheldon: This is a good country, regardless of the current political air.

Robbie: Fourth of July — I have mixed emotions. Being a veteran, I’m disappointed things haven’t gotten any better than it was when I was in the service. I thought that by now we’d be closer to utopia than we were. We’re no closer.

Talk of the country’s divides took the men’s thoughts to President Barack Obama and the recent uproar over whether to remove Confederate statues and monuments from public squares.

Robbie: If we’re all Americans, we’d treat each other as if we’re all Americans. We actually elected a black man president eight years ago. But here’s the thing: When you have people all over the country in an uproar because they don’t want to bury their rebel flags? The only reason you would want to keep something like that around is for hatred.

‘Not Thinking They’re Bad’ for Disagreeing

Steph Jester, 35, a clinical social worker from Thornton, Colo., was getting ready for a rugged weekend with her sister and nieces with no electricity and few creature comforts in a camper in the high country. Her husband, a National Guardsman, is deployed in the Middle East, so she said the family was celebrating “just being together and the freedom we’ve got.”

Her view of patriotism, now:

It means respecting each other’s rights to have different opinions. And not thinking they’re bad.

‘We Need to Respect the Position’


Doug Windemuller.CreditRyan David Brown for The New York Times

Doug Windemuller, 73, a mostly retired financial planner, was buying buns, milk and Coke at the Pine Junction Country Store, just down the road from his home in Pine, Colo. Traffic gets so bad on the two-lane roads that he and his wife are spending the weekend close to home with friends and having a backyard hot-dog roast.

How was he planning to celebrate?

Display the flag, honor it. Believe in country, God. I’m a patriot. Loyal to the government and the president. We need to respect the position, and right now that’s not happening in this country.

That’s how we’re going to get undivided: by being loyal to the country.

‘A Lot of People Don’t Have What We Have’

Roger Ash, 51, and his son, Ethan, 14, were in Pine, Colo., headed for a day of mountain biking before their family flew from Denver to Costa Rica for a vacation. Ethan wasn’t sure whether there would be fireworks down there. Roger, a teacher in Denver, said the holiday made him think back to his days working for the Peace Corps.

Roger: I don’t think many Americans realize how lucky we are. Yeah, we do have people struggling right now, but we live better than everybody in the world I’ve ever seen.

Ethan: A lot of people don’t have what we have.

On patriotism and President Trump:

Roger: I don’t agree with him. I’m a bleeding-heart liberal, but I still have to support the guy because he is our president. If we don’t, we’re just dividing that nation even more. It’s embarrassing that our kids see this.

‘We’re Still Free to Choose, and to Be’

Karene-Sean Hines, who teaches middle school English to English-language learners and students with learning disabilities, was heading to Barnstead, N.H., to “eat lots of seafood.”

What are you celebrating most this Fourth of July?

Freedom. We are a country where we’re still free to choose, and to be. It’s so wonderful.

In these divided times, what does patriotism mean to you?

Patriotism really means focusing on what is positive about this country. Our loyalty to our flag, and what it stands for. Our diversity, which is our greatest strength. When you say, ‘Who’s America?’ we are all Americans. We’re a country of immigrants.

How do you express that?

“We have a lot of flags, that’s for sure. Yes we do. We make sure everyone knows this is our country.”

‘We’re Celebrating Hope for the Future’

Sveta Bartsch, 40, a paralegal, and her husband, David, 54, a landscape architect, were making the six-hour trek from Cambridge, Mass., to drop off their daughter at camp in Canada.

David: We’re celebrating hope for the future of the country, hope for change. We’ve got to get people into office who actually take responsibility for their jobs.

Sveta: I adopted America as my country. I feel proud to be able to live here. There are so many more opportunities here than anywhere else. For that reason, I live here, even though the rest of my family’s in Russia.

Health care costs are a financial stress, and David said he felt his family slipping to the lower rungs of the middle class. But he said the country’s troubles offered some inspiration: It makes me feel more motivated to get this country on track.

‘Realizing How Good We Have It’

Jonny Aquino, 30, from Boston, and his stepfather, George Bethoney, 52, of Medfield, Mass., were riding their motorcycles up to Old Orchard Beach, Me., to enjoy a break from their carpentry jobs and, Jonny said, be “a couple of beach bums.”

What are you celebrating most?

Jonny: New life. I had a daughter not too long ago. Her first Fourth of July.

In these divided times, what does patriotism mean to you?

George: Honoring our country, honoring our freedom. Supporting our president and realizing how good we have it. Realizing that we can get on our bikes, ride up to Old Orchard and get back to work.

Jonny: You can call that the American dream.

‘Maybe It Can Bring a Sense of Unity’


Sterlin JenkinsCreditAudra Melton for The New York Times

Sterlin Jenkins, 34, a mover from Lawrenceville, Ga., planned to eat barbecue and lie low: “I just try to hang close.” He said his parents’ military service taught him the meaning of the Fourth.

I would say the holiday is more important this year. Maybe it can bring a sense of unity after all of the police brutality and politics and elections. We can just sit back and be one. But we’ll probably wake up on July Fifth and get back to the same thing.

‘The South Really Thinks About It’


Kristy Glass and Bryan Vassar.CreditAudra Melton for The New York Times

Kristy Glass, 36, a real estate agent from Hartwell, Ga., stopped at a Cracker Barrel for lunch as she headed to the airport for a trip to Las Vegas with Bryan Vassar, 41, who works in the poultry industry.

What does the Fourth mean to you?

Kristy: It just means the freedom of our country and the lives people lost for our country, and the people fighting for everything now.

Do you think people think about what you see as the true meaning of the Fourth?

Kristy: There’s a lot of people who don’t, but the South really thinks about it.

Does that feeling stick around after the holiday?

Kristy: People do sit around and think about these things for a short period of time, but then they go on about your life after that.

Bryan: I still know what I’m here for, and what I stand for.

‘The Fourth Isn’t the Same’

Arturo Guerrero, 22, a heating and cooling service technician from Gainesville, Ga., was going to visit family in Texas, watch fireworks and have a cookout. He played with his 18-month-old daughter, Arabella, as he spoke.

The country’s more divided than usual, and the Fourth isn’t the same. To me, the “Sandlot” movie, that’s actually the Fourth of July, when they have the Fourth of July and the whole neighborhood has a cookout and celebrates all together. That doesn’t happen. It’s just so divided, and you can’t hang out with your neighbors and have a cookout together. That’s my ideal, even though it’s a movie.

‘I Take It Very Personally’


Eduardo and David Lopez, twin brothers.CreditAudra Melton for The New York Times

Eduardo Lopez, 25, of Watkinsville, Ga., said the Fourth is one of the few days when the Mexican restaurant he co-owns is closed.

It’s the most important day for us. It means to be free. I’ve been in America for a long time, but I take it very personally. Since I was 10 years old, I’ve been feeling part of it. To be a citizen, I had to study, so that’s where you learn a lot about it.

You think about what is going on and what you have been doing. We always think about the Fourth of July, especially because it’s when all of our family gets together.

‘We Need to Be Protective of Our Country’


Jan and Jim Winter.CreditAudra Melton for The New York Times

Jan Winter, 61, and her husband, Jim, 67, of Jefferson, Ga., were planning a low-country boil with friends and neighbors.

Jan: We need to be protective of our country. We take it for granted, what we have, and maybe people are realizing that now. We’re a divided country now, but since 9/11, I haven’t taken my flag off my porch, except when it rains.

Jim: Our country is so divided, so people should be coming together instead of trying to be resistant and all that. Everybody thinks about hot dogs, hamburgers and going to the fireworks, but the founding fathers and all the people who served and risked their lives — they’re the ones who should be celebrated.

The Court That Rules the World: Imagine a private, “global super court”…

The Court That Rules the World:  Imagine a private, “global super court”…

Featured image: http://www.super

that empowers corporations to bend countries to their will.

A Dark Cloud Has Arisen in America (

A Dark Cloud Has Arisen in America (

Now, from the blockbuster piece,

Say a nation tries to prosecute a corrupt CEO or ban dangerous pollution. Imagine that a company could turn to this super court and sue the whole country for daring to interfere with its profits, demanding hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars as retribution.

Imagine that this court is so powerful that nations often must heed its rulings as if they came from their own supreme courts, with no meaningful way to appeal. That it operates unconstrained by precedent or any significant public oversight, often keeping its proceedings and sometimes even its decisions secret. That the people who decide its cases are largely elite Western corporate attorneys who have a vested interest in expanding the court’s authority because they profit from it directly, arguing cases one day and then sitting in judgment another. That some of them half-jokingly refer to themselves as “The Club” or “The Mafia.”

And imagine that the penalties this court has imposed have been so crushing — and its decisions so unpredictable — that some nations dare not risk a trial, responding to the mere threat of a lawsuit by offering vast concessions, such as rolling back their own laws or even wiping away the punishments of convicted criminals.

This system is already in place, operating behind closed doors in office buildings and conference rooms in cities around the world. Known as investor-state dispute settlement, or ISDS, it is written into a vast network of treaties that govern international trade and investment, including NAFTA and the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which Congress must soon decide whether to ratify.

The BuzzFeed News investigation explores four different aspects of ISDS. In coming days, it will show how the mere threat of an ISDS case can intimidate a nation into gutting its own laws, how some financial firms have transformed what was intended to be a system of justice into an engine of profit, and how America is surprisingly vulnerable to suits from foreign companies.

The series starts today with perhaps the least known and most jarring revelation: Companies and executives accused or even convicted of crimes have escaped punishment by turning to this special forum. Based on exclusive reporting from the Middle East, Central America, and Asia, BuzzFeed News has found the following:

  • A Dubai real estate mogul and former business partner of Donald Trump was sentenced to prison for collaborating on a deal that would swindle the Egyptian people out of millions of dollars — but then he turned to ISDS and got his prison sentence wiped away.
  • In El Salvador, a court found that a factory had poisoned a village — including dozens of children — with lead, failing for years to take government-ordered steps to prevent the toxic metal from seeping out. But the factory owners’ lawyers used ISDS to help the company dodge a criminal conviction and the responsibility for cleaning up the area and providing needed medical care.
  • Two financiers convicted of embezzling more than $300 million from an Indonesian bank used an ISDS finding to fend off Interpol, shield their assets, and effectively nullify their punishment.

When the US Congress votes on whether to give final approval to the sprawling Trans-Pacific Partnership, which President Barack Obama staunchly supports, it will be deciding on a massive expansion of ISDS.Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton oppose the overall treaty, but they have focused mainly on what they say would be the loss of American jobs. Clinton’s running mate, Tim Kaine, has voiced concern about ISDS in particular, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren has lambasted it. Last year, members of both houses of Congress tried to keep it out of the Pacific trade deal. They failed.

I wonder why they failed. Perhaps the following will provide some insight:

A Real Secret Service “For the People by the People, in Defense of the People”

A Real Secret Service “For the People by the People, in Defense of the People”

Featured image:

Citizens allover the world are needing and seeking protection because of the lawless rise of vicious government officials.

Here in the good, old U.S.A., citizens are not obliged to receive protective agency help from corrupt government. Even if the activities are violating, unconstitutional and a tear-down of. the nation, many variations of protective services, the C.I.A., F.B.I and Homeland Security all close their eyes and opt out from responding.

There is obviously many broken connects in our government ( balance, checks and lack of protects). It is the people who fight in military units that defend America. If the people who make up the U.S.A. (military and non-military) are not receiving constitutional nor government agency protection, then who is getting it?

An AWOLL Commentary (AmericaOnCoffee)

Good Question: Just Who Gets Secret Service Protection?

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A new report from the Inspector General of Homeland Security found it took the Secret Service a year to replace a broken alarm system at former President George H.W. Bush’s home.

The Secret Service is responsible for protecting all former presidents and their spouses.

So, who else do they protect?

By law, the Secret Service protects the president and his family, the vice president and her family, the president-elect and his family and the vice president-elect and her family.

Former presidents and their spouses also get lifetime protection. A spouse will lose a Secret Service detail if he or she gets remarried. Children of former presidents under the age of 16 are also covered.

The Secret Service was created in 1865 to investigate counterfeit money. At the time, it was estimated between one-third and half of all money in the U.S. was counterfeit.

In 1894, President Grover Cleveland asked for part-time protection at his vacation home, but it wasn’t until after President McKinley was shot in 1901 that the commander-in-chief was protected full-time.

“At that point, it probably starts to look like maybe presidents deserve a little bit of security,” Hamline political science professor David Schultz said.

After Robert F. Kennedy’s assassination in 1968, Congress authorized protection of “major” presidential and vice presidential candidates and nominees within 120 days of the general election. According to 18 United States Code § 3056, “major” candidates are those identified by the Secretary of Homeland Security and an advisory committee.

Heads of state and their spouses, foreign dignitaries and official representatives of the United States conducting special missions abroad also travel with the Secret Service. Some Cabinet members in the presidential order of succession, U.S. Senators and members of Congress receive protection.

The president can also designate protection for someone through an executive order. For security reasons, the Secret Service doesn’t share specifics.

“If we were to ask the Secret Service bureau who gets the protection and who doesn’t, they’re not going to tell us,” Schultz said.

The Secret Service is also in charge of security for huge special events, like presidential inaugurations and national political conventions.


So, the people, who are the fibers of the nation are being torn apart, pushed up against the wall – what else can the people do but re-align themselves and ensure for justice.

Overthrowing secret societies unto an all-out World War III!

Gas Lines Evoke Memories Of Oil Crises In The 1970s

Gas Lines Evoke Memories Of Oil Crises In The 1970s


Gas lines in America may be rare, but they’re not unprecedented.

The gas shortage in the Northeast, the result of Superstorm Sandy, is inflicting plenty of pain. But it’s a localized phenomenon that’s not expected to last for long.

The gas shortage in the Northeast, the result of Superstorm Sandy, is inflicting plenty of pain. But it’s a localized phenomenon that’s not expected to last for long.

During two separate oil crises in the 1970s, Americans from coast to coast faced persistent gas shortages as the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, or OPEC, flexed its muscles and disrupted oil supplies.

In 1973 and again in 1979, drivers frequently faced around-the-block lines when they tried to fill up.

Drivers would go to stations before dawn or late at night, hoping to avoid the lines.

Odd-even rationing was introduced — meaning that if the last digit on your license plate was odd, you could get gas only on odd-numbered days. New Jersey and New York have just reintroduced the system.



Source: https://amp/

Back in the ’70s, some gas stations took to posting flags — green if they had gas, yellow if rationing was in effect and red if they were out of gas.

To conserve gas, the maximum speed limit was cut to 55 miles per hour. To cut energy consumption in the broader economy, daylight saving time was introduced year-round at the beginning of 1974, facing criticism from parents whose kids had to go to school before sunrise in the winter months.

When the second crisis hit in 1979-80, President Carter described combating it as the “moral equivalent of war,” and many Americans feared that oil shocks would be a recurring nightmare.

Since that crisis, gas prices have surged or fallen, but U.S. oil supplies have been relatively stable, and lines at the pump have, with rare exceptions, remained mercifully short.
